“Perfection in every way. Great for young families!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The Ulin Villas are absolutely deserving of their outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor; and they work very hard to maintain their excellent standard of service.

PROS -
* Beautifully appointed and spacious villas, decorated in the traditional Balinese style. Very private!
* Large private pool which gets a good amount of sunlight during the day
* Beautifully maintained gardens in each villa - with an area of lawn for children to play.
* 1BR villas have a separate living space, separated by a door from the main bedroom. We used this for our 2 young children; Ulin Villas kindly set up cots for both our daughters (even our 3yo fit in a cot, as it was very large, and she loved it!). This is a huge plus as the area is still air conditioned but separated from our bedroom, without being in a separate building like the 2BR villas.
* Very child-friendly. The staff went out of their way to assist in every way possible to ensure a comfortable stay for our 1yo and 3yo. They provided a pool fence, microwave to sterilise bottles, cots, all at no extra cost. Nothing was too much trouble!
* BRILLIANT location, just off Eat Street. Lots of fabulous restaurants and clothing / homeware stores just around the corner. Yet Ulin Villas is set back from the main street so once inside it is a haven of peace. Walking distance or short inexpensive taxi ride from the main beach clubs like Potato Head and KuDeTa (be sure to take the blue taxis and insist on the driver using the meter!).
* Complimentary shuttle service to all the local restaurants and shops
* Very friendly staff and excellent level of service
* In-villa BBQ is a real treat
* Staff went out of their way to ensure our daughter had a very special 1st birthday - on the afternoon a large group of staff all came to our villa with a cake to sing Happy Birthday to her!

Thanks to all the staff at Ulin Villas for making our time so relaxing. We will most definitely be back, hopefully in the not too distant future :)

Room Tip: Villa 5 was positioned half way along the driveway and we found it perfect! 1BR villa layout worked...

The Ulin Villas are a luxurious and romantic place to stay, and the best part is that while they are sleekly fashionable, they still feel Balinese. The one bedroom we stayed in was furnished in international style but it's outdoor bathroom and shower and iconic Bales made it feel classically Indonesian. We were impressed with every detail. The pool is elegant, absolutely private ( good for romance) and large enough to exercise in. A lovely touch is having your breakfast cooked for you in your outdoor room adjacent to the pool. The breakfast was first rate- and it felt like having your own house ( we should all be so lucky). Other nice touches are an included foot rub (not sure that is offered to everyone) and a welcome drink ( that is offered at most Bali hotels). While the price of the Ulin Villas is considerable- about 425 for the one bedroom model, we felt it was comparable to Villas that cost twice as much. Lots of little extras, like a delicious afternoon tea delivered to your room make you feel extremely well taken care off. One note: some of the villas are being redecorated and the outdoor bathrooms will become indoor with windows that let the fresh air in. The new color scheme is even more elegant than the old one, Unless you are looking for something more truly traditional, its hard to think you can do better than the Ulin Villas, One final note though: this is in the thick of Seminyak about a ten minute walk to the beach. Seminyak is, to say the least,, intense. The beach (Kuta) is wide and the waves are great for surfing, but you can get various beach salespeople bugging you there... If you are looking for a quiet , isolated neighborhood, this isn't it. While it is an oasis of calm inside your beautiful villa, the outside is jumping.
Finally, we ate at a terrific restaurant, on the recommendation of the extremely well prepared and sweet staff.-- I definitely would go back to Metis if I could. Gorgeous, glam place but looks didn't sacrifice taste- the desert soufflés, especially the chocolate and Grand Marnier were just amazing. Perfect.

Room Tip: If you want the newly decorated rooms they should be done by next April- but honestly I think the ro...

We are truly pleased to read you thoroughly enjoyed the experience you had at THE ULIN VILLAS AND SPA. Thank you very much for taking your valued time to share your review.

All of our villas are designed to deliver the ultimate pool villa experience, tropical luxury, Balinese cutting edge architecture and the modern comforts. We have successfully completed our moke-up (villa sample) to figure out on how the new interior would look like in the future. We are planning to change our color mood and the interior to be even better and to represent the elegant Balinese design. I am also happy to know all staff members looked after you well and were very attentive to all your requests. All of us at THE ULIN VILLAS AND SPA look forward to welcoming you back very soon again.

This is a small luxury boutique hotel just next to happening 'Seminiyak' street. Once you enter your villa you will forget the busy street & the villa will mesmerize you. Lavish private pool, open kitchen,separate spa area, open bathroom & beautiful four poster bed, TV lounge, etc....make it an exotic place to be.

I found ULIN Villas value for money in terms of location & luxury in heart of Seminiyak. If you like stay slightly further away from the main happening place, you would be able to find other nice smaller boutique hotels in slightly cheaper tariffs with similar luxuries. One could explore & choose. If you are happy to get the best luxury at a convenience location...this is a good place.

We had breakfast every morning which was a delight. Maria our cook use to come & cook fresh omelets or anything you like from the menu. Very delicious & very well presented.
Reception staff could be more courteous & welcoming. Which I though needs improvement. Besides this no flaws at all.

Kids friendly hotel & overall an excellent experience....
Cheers

Ulin was our choice after a lot of research. We wanted somewhere special for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Villa 9 was perfect behind the spa so very quiet and had the sun on the pool most of the day. Our BBQ dinner was wonderful including Frangipanis scattered all over the gardens. Our pool lanterns were lit every night and our mozzie coils burnt nearly 24/7... Nothing was ever too much trouble our breakfast was served quickly and efficiently and our villa clean was always done when we returned from being out. The staff were delightful always smiling and ready to help. You are spoilt for choice with Eat Street 50 metres away and in villa dining was also really good. Will never stay anywhere else when in Seminyak.

Stayed here for 2 nights and didnt want to return.

The resort is located amid the busy Seminiyak street yet secluded enough to have a peacuful stay.

And one of the nicest part of the stay was to wakeup in the morning at our own leisure, yet the breakfast being served inside our villa, that too custom made to our liking.

Thank you Ulin for making our Holiday a memorable experience.

I just returned from a 5night stay at Ulin Villas and quite enjoyed it.

Pros:
- Location!! The villas are located just off the middle of the main shopping/restaurant street.
- Villa size. We stayed in a 1bdr villa and it is perfect for a couple. The pool is also huge (the biggest 1bdr villa pool in Seminyak I'm told)
- Villa staff are lovely. All the staff were always sure to say hi and were always very polite.
- The gardens. Need to make special mention to this. From the villa surroundings to inside the the villa itself, everything is lovely and well kept. (We especially loved the frangipani tree)

Cons:
- The breakfast menu may be limiting to some. While it has many choices I found that it was really centred around eggs for the more 'western' mains.
- Some of the furniture seemed like it needed an update. Our couch had a small hole in it and our TV was out of sync. Our iPod dock also didn't have an adaptor for it (not sure if previous occupants made off with it?)
- Wifi drops in and out sometimes regardless of where you are in the villa.
- Bathroom was quite dark (lights aren't overly bright) as there is no natural light from the outside (*A little note, the bathrooms are outdoors and may back onto more of an open garden to the villa next to you. This may bother some people, but in Villa 9 we had the spa next to our bathroom so it was bliss for us.)

The only personal issue I had was part of our package we had a 20min foot massage and canapes upon departure included. During check in nothing was mentioned about massage. My mum has also stayed at Ulin and when I came home she told me I needed to book this, but again I was not told this by staff. When I departed, no canapes either! I only realised these were missing when I got home and checked the email the villa sent me upon booking! That said these are minor issues and would not stop me from staying here when I visit bali next

Thanks for the lovely stay Ulin Villas
